on the town monday - scottsdale museum of contemporary art


baby and i took an adventure with jen last week to the smoca. there was quite an exciting exhibit of sound suits by nick cave. these suits reminded me of dr. seuss, sesame street, looney tunes, and a little dark crystal. there were two rooms for the exhibit: one that had the suit set up on models

and another that had videos projected on the walls showing the suits in motion and accompanied by the sounds that they made


at first i was weirded out, but by the time we made our way to the room with video i was entranced by them. and frankly i wanted to put one on and bust a move. the smoca offers free admission on thursdays, so check it out. you won't regret it.

Why am I completely disturbed by the pink polka dot one? Like scary disturbed. Hmmm.
